    Henry O'Hare is my Grandad. Evelyn is one of his daughters. I'm Evelyn's Daughter too. An amazing family, and so proud to be part of it. Would be great to get all the family and cousins together. As I now live in Co Durham and don't get home as much anymore.

    My great-grandfather was Stanley 'Danny' O'Hare of Liverpool, who eventually settled in Greenfield nr. Holywell, in Flintshire, with his wife Edna May. Myself and my other family members would love to get in touch with anyone from the O'Hare family who believes that there may be some connection between our families!
